K Koke feat. Stefflon Don – ‘I’m Back Again’

North West London rapper K Koke made his return known to the UK rap game with his new track ‘I’m Back Again’, featuring a hook from one of the UK’s brightest talents, Stefflon Don. Despite his career being held back due to unfortunate circumstances, this talented lyricist is making sure nothing will stop him achieving his goals, and this track definitely reinforces that message. It’s a follow-up to the teaser track ‘Living Isn’t Found’ from Koke, which dropped a few days before, talking through social, political and personal issues. These two tracks definitely show us that he has had a lot to think about and is in a reflective state of mind, which will make his comeback stronger, as he is presenting issues that people can relate to. ‘I’m Back Again’ though is more personal for him as he raps about issues holding his music career back: “No nights off, I’m grinding like I’m supposed to fam, sliding from the sirens tryna find us in their police van.”

Kojey Radical – ‘Footsteps’

Kojey Radical delivers a stunning new visual for his track ‘Footsteps’, from his recently released EP 23 Winters. The dark video shows Kojey battling demons as he talks us through personal struggles, “I was out here trying to make a penny out this hardship,” whilst we see him with a bottle of Hennessey and clips of him in an emotional state. His delivery is also emotionally charged and full of passion as he talks us through a story of the music industry, his parents, and the struggles he sees around him personally. Kojey says of the track, “‘Footsteps’ is a visual depiction of what it’s like to battle with self-doubt within an industry designed to pigeon-hole and categorise. A struggle that becomes more apparent as I grow as an artist and as a thinker.” It’s a great blend of poetry and rap.

Big 6ix ft TE dness – ‘Are You Mad’

Big 6ix enlists another 6 Figure Music artist TE dness for ‘Are You Mad’, where the two spit fire over a hard, trap beat. Big 6ix has worked as an engineer on tracks for the likes of C Biz and Stormzy, and both artists have a reputation in the scene for delivering quality music. ‘Are You Mad’ brings a lulling, almost ghostly beat as the introduction, which turns into an ominous, trap beat as Big 6ix delivers confident, street bars with a solid, fierce delivery as he spits on the hook, “the realist is back, was a King in the trap, just to be a King in this rap, bruv are you made, Imma put this ting on the map.” TE dness switches his verse up with unique delivery, which stands out and shows TE is a step above the rest.

Adian Coker – ‘Krispy’

Adian Coker released his Connect EP on May 20th, but before it dropped he teased us with three out of the six tracks: ‘Aim’ ft Bluey Robinson, ‘Iyamide’s Son,’ and ‘Nothing New’. Now he brings us the visuals for ‘Krispy’. It’s a beast of a tune, with a heavy-footed bass that charges through the song, leading you to bop your head in time with the fast pace. Adian prowls through the track seemingly indifferent to his own ingenious lyrics, eloquent raps, and intelligent wordplay, proving he is in a lane of his own.

Don Strapzy – ‘War Ready’

South London artist Don Strapzy has been hitting us hard with a lot of music recently. His latest track and video, ‘War Ready’, features Strapzy coming for his title and is ready to do whatever it takes. He shows us some of his of his slick wordplay and hard hitting bars coupled with a strong delivery that matches the track’s theme. The visuals show Strapzy filmed behind bars and also some clips in the gym. He talks us through some personal real-life issues and his career, “I’m in the jungle look mr Jungle Book and I’m Shere Khan.”

Giggs released a snippet of music on his Instagram, which is suspected to be from his forthcoming album Landlord: “BELIEVE ME PEOPLE,THE NEW ALBUM “LANDLORD” IS COMING. DONT BE IMPATIENT,IVE NEVER EVER LET YOU DOWN,AND LET ME JUST REMIND YOU WHY.” We can’t wait for that!

Lil Nasty

On New Year’s Day, platform SBTV dropped 5 videos called ‘Better Place’ from five talented UK rappers. The conceptual tracks/visuals are about their specific and different areas they are from and how they feel about them. In a very poignant showing, (following the tragic death of his little brother Nico Ramsay), Lil Nasty – who is known as a Grime MC – brought ‘Better Place’ to Plaistow. It’s a tribute to his brother and is emotional and moving, with Nasty taking on one of his first ever rap tracks, and doing it justice. He opens ‘Better Place (Plaistow)’ saying “What happened to the fun times, now it’s all blades and gun crime, youngers on the front line, attitude is thug life.”

Blittz & Big Tobz

Blittz & Big Tobz are two East London rappers who quickly made a name for themselves in 2015, both singly and as a duo with their on point punchlines and memorable tracks. ‘Wicked And Bad’ is the latest release from the rap duo, and an enticing track to kick off their collaborative forthcoming project Case Closed, which is set to be released in August 2016. Case Closed is produced and will be released by The Heavytrackerz, setting a new benchmark for the rap game. This track is the perfect introduction to the LP with an enthralling beat and the hook, which embodies the title track.

Adian Coker

Adian Coker is no stranger to the hip-hop game – he first staked his claim in the underground with his debut mixtape release Lights Fantastic, with his follow-up Young World propelling him past that success. He now returns with his brand new track ‘No Angel’, with a sample of Madonna’s ‘Papa Don’t Preach’ and a glimpse of Kanye West’s ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing.’ Adian laces the track with his deep vocals and dives straight into exploring and taking control of the production, with his lyrics using emotion, frustration and strength to bring inspiration. It’s just Adian baring himself to the world with no barriers to hold him back.

Avelino

Hailing from Tottenham, Avelino turned heads when he dropped his free collaborative mixtape with Wretch 32 titled Young Fire, Old Flame in 2015. This year is all about his own music though, which kicks off with ‘Welcome To The Future,’ produced by Raf Riley. It showcases his distinctive lyricism, signature wordplay and inimitable flow, and stakes his strong presence in the game where he has now become a successful artist after years in the underground. The track has got a futuristic and fresh sound to it and is just the start of things to come this year. He will be releasing his debut EP soon too so make sure you watch out for that.

Potter Payper

Essex rapper Potter Payper released his 7-track One Time EP on March 31st and also dropped a new visual off of their ‘Real Life (Black Impala).’ It’s the second visual from the EP, following on from ‘Normal’ (feat Maverick Sabre). ‘Real Life’ provides a soulful, contemplative glimpse at Payper’s struggles with the visuals ever-reflecting the lyrics. Potter raps, “Sugh Knight in this Black Impala, mob shit tryna jack him after. I’m too G I’m so Bush Obama,” over a guitar-led track. Potter is definitely one of the coldest UK rappers, with some of the realist lyrics. You can get his EP here.
